Ah Reddit, the wild west realm on the Internet where some of the best memes, conspiracy theories, and leaks appear to give music and entertainment fans an online community to dish on their most obsessed about topics. One of the more recent discoveries which was shared on the popular website is Tyler, The Creator’s old MySpace page from 2008, which apparently gives his fans some new, unreleased material from his days as an independent musician.
For the kids out there who only hear of MySpace as an urban legend that existed prior to Facebook, let this writer tell you, that there was a time when the original social media site was the place to be to share photos and friend lists before Mark Zuckerberg showed up and turned the world upside down and filled it with fake news.
It was even more beneficial for independent musicians to use the the platform as a customized website where songs could be uploaded and shared to help build an online community, which is what Tyler, The Creator was doing with his own page, which was titled, 'I Smell Panties.' Oh yeah, that’s another thing you could do - you could give your MySpace pages a ridiculous name.
Still up and running on his page are six unreleased songs including, “Hi To Me,” “Bapes Freestyle,” Bring The Hi Hat In,” “Bapes,” “Lilo F*cks Stitch,” and “Lisa.” Unfortunately none of these tracks ended up on his 2009 debut mixtape, Bastard, or his debut studio album, Gobilin, in 2011. It’s nice to see his love for weird song titles was in strong form early on in his career however.
